I love working with kids.  They don’t have any pretenses.  And they aren’t conformed by social norms.  If they want to do something, they just do it.  And I love it!  It’s what makes them kids.  And they grow out of it eventually.  So, it’s super sweet to have these little moments during the photo session when they just let their personality shine.

During this particular session with twins, he was reserved and she was silly and funny and moving all around.  Even the multi-colored nails were just HER.  Love it!

I start the session by asking, is your baby serious?  One year olds can be all business.  They have a whole world to learn!  And if I try to get too silly, it will just back fire and scare them.  But, if I ease into things, the smiles will come at the end of the session.

This particular session started out with the baby just checking me out.  She was curious about me and the big black camera.  But, before long, she forgot she was at a photo session and her mom and dad were able to get her laughing and smiling.

That’s the beauty of reading people (and babies).  If you ask questions and be accommodating, everything goes your way!

Extended Family Photo Sessions // Huntington Beach Family Photographer

It’s no secret that I’m a sucker for the golden light that happens at the end of the day.  So, every year, we try to schedule their photo session at the end of the day.  It’s cousins and aunts and uncles, everyone’s there!  During my sessions that include more than one family, I switch it up, bouncing back and forth between kids and family.  That way everyone gets a break.  No one has to be ‘on’ the whole time.  Scheduling a session with extended family is such a great idea.  I love the dynamic that happens between all the relatives.

Yay for February! // Huntington Beach Family Photography

January is the hardest month.  We’re coming off sugar cookies and a constant string of parties.  January just seems so dull.  The most exciting thing happening is the drawers I’m re-organizing.  And let’s not even talk about weight-loss goals.  But, it’s behind us now.  February is a short month, with the highlight of Valentine’s Day right in the middle and even a day off school!  I hope your February is off to a good start.  Are you planning your Valentine’s yet?  I did a round up of free printable Valentine’s over on Modern Parents Messy Kids if you want to check it out.  And in the meantime, here’s a little flash back from a super cute family’s holiday photo session.
